Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The eagle on the pile suggests the unit's airlift functions in support of the Air Force global reach mission. The descending parachute toward the bull's eye represents the skill and proficiency of the personnel of the unit in the performance of their duties. The stars represent courage, justice and determination, qualities displayed by unit personnel. The lightning flash denotes the swiftness with which the Squadron performs its duties. The motto, "Non Ducor Duco," translates in English to "I Am Not Led, I Lead."
